Hi Zig!

Very nice captures both of them and looking at them I had to double check that you weren;t using the 1.4 or 2 x TC with the lens. I've been thinking of picking up the 1.4TC to use with the 35-100 but I still think it won;t give enough reach for birding but those two shots of yours have got me thinking!

No chance of any decent weather here in the UK or signs of any birds at all in my garden.

Cheers

Hi Harj,

Thanks for the comments.

I too keep thinking about getting the EC-14 teleconverter. But the list price keeps getting in the way.I just haven't been able to justify it for the amount of use I'd give it. Everytime I see a used one on-line, someone beats me to it.

The other consideration is the 70-300mm lens which sells for less than the EC-14. Granted, it's slower but is a really good performer inbright lighting conditions.

regards,

Zig
